More than 80 participants are expected at St. Frances on Saturday for a youth baseball clinic the school is holding in conjunction with the Detroit Tigers.
Former Tigers great Willie Horton, who now serves as the special assistant to Tigers president Dave Dombrowski, will be the special guest for the clinic, which will be held in the St. Frances Panthers Gymnasium at 501 East Chase Street.
Horton, a seven-time All-Star, was a left fielder and designated hitter who played for six American League teams, primarily Detroit. He will be sharing the expertise that helped him hit 20 or more home runs seven times, 325 career home runs, and produce a lifetime batting average of .273.
The clinic is free for kids ages 11-14. It is designed to work on all facets of the game. The St. Frances coaching staff, including head coach and Tigers scout Brian Boles, will direct the clinic.
